Belgian artist David Claerbout (born 1969) is known for investigating the conceptual impact of the passage of time through his use of video and digital photography. His work skillfully interrogates both moving and still imagery to suggest an otherworldly level of existence, something that might refer to a specific place or event, but the timeline of which is not clear, oscillating between both past and present. His oeuvre is characterized by a meticulous attention to production details. With each of his projects Claerbout creates a small number of drawings, which help him to reflect upon and comprehend his concepts more thoroughly. Up to now, these works have not been afforded the attention they deserve. This publication addresses that oversight, presenting a comprehensive overview of Claerbout’s drawings created over a period of two decades.

“As a filmmaker my tool is memory, not film,” says David Claerbout in The Time That Remains, “and memory likes a good composition.” Although originally trained as a painter and a draughtsman, Claerbout (born 1969) has taken Belgium and the world by storm with his epic video installations. These installations are devised in his own studio, where he collects and arranges thousands of stills and scans into slow and deliberate moving films. Time, in Claerbout’s videos, seems to move with a mesmerizing heaviness, almost as if within a memory or piece of music. With some of his films lasting up to 13 hours, Claerbout expects and requires the undivided attention of his audience or, at least, their patience. In this first catalogue of his oeuvre, his film and video projects are presented through his production photographs and design sketches, offering an exciting introduction into the process and aesthetic development of the artist.

At first glance, David Claerbout's poetic video installations appear as static as slide projections. In time, however, one notices that the space inside the pictures is moving. This book focuses on the reliability of reality, and is a documentation and a catalogue raisonnª of Claerbout's photography and video work.
